Aiuto Alla Chiesa che Soffre

Seville (Agenzia Fides) – According to the United Nations Organisation in the world at present there are some 60 million displaced persons, the largest number of them come from Syria. Many undertake exhausting journeys to reach other countries but the majority are internally displaced persons. The same happens in other countries like the Central African Republic, South Sudan, Lebanon, Nigeria and Ukraine. To give concrete aid to these unfortunate people, the Spanish based branch of the pontifical foundation Aid to the Church in Need is continuing a campaign which over the last 12 months collected funds to guarantee shelter, food, clothing, medicines, psychological assistance, education and pastoral care. It also supports priests, religious men and women and missionaries active in this field. (AP) (3/12/2015 Agenzia Fides)
